Product description

Product Description

Scored for a large orchestra, including triple wind and a raft of percussion, Pendereckis Piano Concerto, heard here in its 2007 revision first performed by Barry Douglas, renews the composers direct involvement with the grand concerto tradition that culminated in Rachmaninov and Prokofiev. Its subtitle Resurrection refers to the melody based on a chorale of a non-religious character, which gradually make its way into the foreground before emerging with striking power at the works climax. The more modest forces used in the Flute Concerto place no restriction on this works exceptional emotional range and kaleidoscopic colours.

Our ongoing recordings of Krzysztof Pendereckis work have drawn a wide following, and each new addition is eagerly snapped up in large quantities. This is based on universally recognised quality in all of these fine performances (Gramophone), and our Penderecki series is [seen as] Wits finest legacy so far: Polands best living conductor at the service of its top living composer (Culture Catch, both quotes on 8.572211, Viola and Cello concertos).

Lukasz Duglosz has been the composers flautist of choice for numerous performances of the Flute Concerto, and Barry Douglas was soloist in the première of the revised Piano Concerto in 2007. The pedigree of soloists, conductor and orchestra make these recordings a must-have for all collectors.

Review

Douglas, Wit and the WPO don t hold back; their performance is appropriately hard-selling and over-the-top. --Gramophone June 2013

'As he shows in the latest installment of Antoni Wit's Penderecki series with the Warsaw Philharmonic, Douglas is ideally suited to this big-bones music, and relishes its darkly imposing and sometimes splashy textures...Wit draws a kaleidoscopic performance, making this another valuable addition to the Penderecki discography.' --BBC Music Magazine, July 2013
